Germany coach Low scuppers Chelsea rumours

The trainer has insisted that he intends to fulfill his current contract, in spite of murmurs that he had a meeting with Roman Abramovich over a potential move to Stamford Bridge
Germany coach Joachim Low has poured cold water on rumours of his potential move to Chelsea to replace sacked trainer Andre Villas-Boas.

On Monday it was reported that Low was spotted meeting with Roman Abramovich in a hotel in Geneva, and while the 52-year-old was indeed in Switzerland at the time, he was quick to rubbish reports that he might move to Stamford Bridge.

"I have a contract to be the Bundestrainer until 2014. In three months, the European Championship begins, everyone knows my goal," he said, via team spokesperson Harald Stenger.

"I therefore see no point in commenting on media speculation."

On Monday, Low was in Geneva on a business trip, along with team manager Oliver Bierhoff and Germany internationals Mario Gotze and Benedikt Howedes. On the eve of an auto show, the quartet served as brand ambassadors for sponsors Mercedes-Benz.
